Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians:
Welcome to R. E. Stevenson Elementary School. As the new principal of Stevenson, it is my sincere pleasure and honor to become a member of this great school community. I look forward to working with the dedicated staff to provide a child centered educational experience for all of our students.
Before joining the Stevenson family, my professional career was entirely within the Todd County School District. I was an elementary classroom teacher for 17 years and taught virtually every grade level from kindergarten through fifth grade. I was an Assistant Principal for two years and have been an Instructional Supervisor for the past four years. I am pleased and very excited to be back at the elementary level and look forward to the day-to-day interactions with students as well as parents/guardians. My philosophy is simple. We as educators at Stevenson will do everything we do based solely on what is in the best interest of the individual child. I believe that it is important to foster respectful relationships between all members of our learning community, students, parents/guardians, and teachers alike. It is my expectation that we build a culture where communication is key and respect and cooperation are the norm.
As we move into a new school year, I look forward to the fun we are going to have together but also realize that we have challenges ahead. With the understanding that all students can and will learn, we accept those challenges and will work diligently to make sure all of our students are successful.
Lastly, I want to encourage all school community partners, especially parents/guardians to become involved and engaged in our students' education. We want you in our building and need your help to ensure that our students have a successful elementary experience and are prepared for the next level. So please, ask your child's teacher, principal, guidance counselor, etc. what you can do to be a part of Stevenson's support system for our students.
If you have any questions regarding opportunities to get involved or any other matter, do not hesitate to email or call the school at 270-726-8425.
Thank you for your commitment to your child's education.
